Keeping Your License After a DUI in California

Warning: You must request a DMV hearing within 10 calendar days (holidays included) of your arrest date.

After a California DUI arrest, you only have 10 days to act!

You have nothing to lose by requesting and having a DMV hearing held on your behalf. If you did not request a DMV hearing in a timely fashion, your license will automatically be suspended 30 days from the date of arrest. If you request a DMV hearing timely and you lose, your license suspension time would be the same as if you did not request the hearing. So, by requesting a DMV hearing you are requiring the DMV to show (prove) that they have the evidence to suspend your license.

You only have something to gain - KEEPING your license.

Once a hearing is requested the DMV is required to schedule that hearing with you.

The hearing date is usually set 4-8 weeks after the date of arrest. Once the hearing date is set, the DMV will send "discovery" or all the reports they are going to use to try to take your license away from you. This is where having a lawyer is imperative. DUI specialists know the defenses to use to win your DMV hearing.
